MARCH MADNESS FUNDRAISER A BIG WIN!

The March Madness fundraiser held on March 1st was a huge success. Proceeds from the dinner are over $35,000.00 and will help us in our mission of providing critical services to children who have been abused and neglected.

Grab Your Seat!

Not literally. This is your last chance to purchase your ticket and reserve your seat at our March Madness Fundraiser. That chair looks lonely. Help it out. Of course, if you’re not into groups or crowds, that’s okay. You can still make a difference with a donation. We appreciate your support whether you attend the game in person or cheer from your coaches seat at home! Support is support. We are all cheering for the same team after all – children – and we can’t do it without you. 

Please be there!
